Provincial Scholars plant 740 trees

Under the rain, more than 200 scholars planted 740 seedlings of Dao, Mahogany and Lawaan at the Provincial Tree Park on June 12, 2012 at 1:30 in the afternoon, after they were presented and confirmed as provincial scholars for sy. 2012-2013 by the governor, Hon. Adolph Edward G. Plaza during the Grand Opening Program of the 20th Naliyagan Festival.

“This tree planting activity is a requirement of our government scholars per Ordinance No. 3 series of 2007 which is also known as the Agusan del Sur Environment Code”, Hon. Cesar M. Alonde, Chairman of the Committee on Education said.

The activity was successfully done in coordination with the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) through PENR Officer For. Ronulfo Paler. Acting Chief Forest Management Division, For. Vevencio Banog, headed the group of men from PENRO namely For. Rex Mel P. Acedillo, Mr. Rocky D. Perez, Mr. Rogelio Paler, Mr. Richard C. Otaza, Mr. Corsino C. Ranara, For. Romnick E. Germino and Mr. Eric J.

Vice Governor, Hon. Santi Cane, Jr. was very delighted with the very positive response of the scholars despite heavy downpour and the support extended by the PENRO.

This school year, the province has 276 scholars.
